Description Aims and Objectives

The Guernsey Disability Alliance (GDA) brings together individual disabled people, and the charities that support them, to work together on common issues, raising awareness and driving for change.

Members includes people with reduced mobility, sensory impairment, learning difficulties, mental health issues or long-term illness. Plus their families, carers and more than 40 local disability charities.

Our long-term aim is equality of opportunity for disabled islanders and carers. There is no Disability Discrimination Act in Guernsey and the island has not yet signed up to the UN Convention on the Rights of Person's with Disabilities.

As a result of GDA campaigning, the island now has a Disability and Inclusion Strategy - see www.matter.gg and www.gov.gg/disabilitystrategy. Www.gda.org.gg

Organisation and Management

Executive committee comprised of four elected officers, the executive director and co-optees.

Monthly meetings for the full membership, often with guest speakers from a range of charities, groups, States Departments etc. Regular email updates, facebook and twitter feeds and monthly newsletters.
